The cell surface decoy receptor proteins TRID (also known as DcR1 or TRAIL-R3) and TRUNDD (DcR2, TRAIL-R4) inhibit caspase-dependent cell death induced by the cytotoxic ligand TRAIL in part because of their absent or truncated cytoplasmic death domains, respectively. We previously identified the death domain containing proapoptotic TRAIL death receptor KILLER/DR5 (TRAIL-R2) as an upregulated transcript following exposure of cancer cells, with wild-type but not with mutant or degraded p53… CONTINUE READING
